The New York Times covered Pratt's annual fashion runway show on its “On the Runway” column on all things fashion. The Times highlighted the Pratt Institution Fashion Industry Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to Fern Mallis from Calvin Klein, which took place at the start of the show, and singled out students from this year's graduating class whose work showed a sophisticated eye and a feeling of what's new. The last student named, Kelsy Parkhouse, was recipient of the “Liz Claiborne – Concept to Product Award,” a new prize worth $25,000.
